Swaying in the breeze the big tree stood,
Hacking, sawing, fall it would.

Dragged away to the mill,
Sawed to pieces, certainly it will.

Into a barn and posted high,
Left alone to dry, and die.

Down it comes into the pile,
Falling, falling, as if a mile.

Now it stands all by itself,
Sitting on that worthless shelf.

This poem briefly reveals my feeling of deforestation and logging. The environment should be respected and natural resources should not be wasted.
